This week's update on the skate park

Welcome back to the Urbana Skate Park progress update. We got a lot done this week compared to last week. You can really see it coming together. There are stairs, rails and a Eurogap - whatever that is - I am not knowledgable in these things! I'll have to come out when it is done and have a skate boarder tell me what the elements are and show me how they are used. I think I'll leave my skate board at home, though!

The spring rains are welcome for the farmers, but they are getting us behind schedule. We can use some help if you know of someone who has experience placing concrete and would like to be a part of creating this exciting and challenging project. They need to have a positive attitude and be proud of a job well done. Have them call the office for an application at 1-866-466-8614.


  1. It's really great to see the progress of the park! Great video too! When do you hope to have it finished? I don't have much background on the facility...will it be open to the public?

  2. Completion date is expected to be the first to mid part of June. Yes, it will be open to the public! Get your skateboard ready. I expect to see you there. ;-)
